    Though I haven't gotten a chance to watch the full episode yet due to it being finals week for me, what I have seen so far is really good. Thank you Jello! Your content shouldn't be receiving all this backlash over something so trivial.

    What's up Casey Neistat 2.0? How's Hillary?

  • BRBeverage (Nov 30, 2018)

    Are the dislikes because of the actual video, or ongoing backlash from the political one?I'm assuming it's not this video...

  • JelloApocalypse (Nov 30, 2018)

    The latter!This is an educational video, so all comments related to the topic at hand have been removed. That way if people actually want to field questions and start a discussion about the topic at hand they can do that.

  • Joe (Nov 30, 2018)

    It looks like he disabled the dislikes? I cant see itI mean i was pretty offended by that video too, but then going and hating on everything he does is pointless and immature

  • I wouldn’t recommend writing with your tongue, just saying.

    Here's a classic Woody Allen joke on the topic : "How can I believe in God when just last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?"

    Challenge accepted!!

    Crazy thinking the next one is the finale. At least they'll always be available on the channel to go back and relisten to.

    I'm on mobile, so I hope the likes/dislikes are bugged, and not disabled. Although I wasn't a fan with the recent activity to come from the channel, I think being malicious towards EVERY new video is not only pointless but it's simply toxic. If you're no longer a fan of him (which is perhaps fair), move on. Hopefully I'm not the one initiates the topic by merely bringing it up, but it would seem by the disabled ratings that maybe they were quickly skewed by malicious intent rather than video quality.

  • SR. MISSIGNO (Nov 30, 2018)

    +JelloApocalypse thank you so much, someone finally answered a question that left me with a lot of doubt

  • JelloApocalypse (Nov 30, 2018)
